The Great War in 3D Kit features first-person narratives, rare vintage photographs and a stereoscopic viewer that vividly reveals World War I's battlefields, troops, and home fronts.

This innovative kit includes a full-color illustrated book and keepsake stereoscopic viewer with 35 stereoscopic photographs of some of the most compelling moments captured on film during World War I. It takes readers and fans of films like 1917 and They Shall Not Grow Old on to the battle grounds, reading the words of soldiers, sailors, officers, and loved ones at home, on all sides of this conflict.

From the beginning of the war in 1914 to the signing of the treaty in 1918, advances in photography and technology produced remarkable chronicles of daily life in the trenches, in POW camps, and back home. The Great War in 3D shares some rare, poignant, and telling moments through these images. It also reveals how innovations and advances also gave rise to a new kind of censorship or propaganda, and new responses of patriotism and revolution.

The Great War in 3D includes:

  • Quality paperback illustrated album including historic and personal photographs, illustrations, and first-person memoir
  • A nostalgically-chic stereoscopic viewer
  • 35 stereographic photo images highlighting crucial moments, pithily captioned for context.
  • Resilient, foil-stamped magnetic closure box snugly contains all elements.
